    Just chiming in at the end here to sympathise with your childhood-self Clem. I had chicken pox at 12 and I was so so sick with fevers, delirious etc.
    Not to even mention the spots which were like massive weeping sores all over me including in my mouth and throat and up both my you-know-where and the #2 hole...and I was sick for so long that of course I had an AF while still all covered in sores down there. So traumatic!

    Sorry, totally unrelated to the actual point of the thread, just wanted to sympathise with Clem

    This is not entirely true, if you have two shots of the MMR then you will me 99% protected against measles. You would have to be pretty unlucky to catch it if you were fully immunised. With the WC vaccination, they need three shots to be around 85% covered, there is also another strain going around that isn't covered by the vax. Generally though, the other vaccinations are very effective.

    However although my girls are vaxxed on time every time my daughter caught whooping cough a week before her 2 month jabs, so even vaxxed kids can get it and anything else, just remember that when your kids are interacting... vaccination is to help the severity if caught, it doesn't stop you from getting it at all..

    What Beebs said. Also, you said your DD got WC a week *before* her two month jabs, so even vaxxed kids can catch it, however, your DD wouldn't have had any WC shots yet- the only one she would have had, by the schedule, it's the hep b at birth shot. The first lot of the WC vax is in those two month shots that she hadn't yet had when she contracted WC.

    Just to clarify. Not purposely expose, but to have a child be able to cope with exposure in the environment.

    Yeah, see, I still don't really get this. You cannot make sure a child can cope with a disease other than doing what you can to ensure general health (good nutrition etc) which may or may mot help with an infection- and vaccinating.
